• Do I need to decrypt my root partition to replace GRUB with SysLinux


    I am currently using GRUB and when I installed Antergos I chose to encrypt my root partition. My question is; do I need to decrypt my root partition to replace GRUB with SysLinux?

    If you use encryption LUKS change the APPEND line to use your encrypted volume:

    APPEND root=/dev/mapper/group-name cryptdevice=/dev/sda2:name rw
    

    As i can see it should work also on encrypted /boot, as LUKS will ask for LUKS passphrase on attempt to load the device ?

  • install syslinux to the hd you want it too (example for MBR install aka. Bios system)
    sudo syslinux-install_update -i -a -m -c /dev/sdX
    then configure syslinux:
    sudo nano /boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg
    The APPEND line must be adjusted for both entries (antergos and antergos-fallback):

    APPEND cryptdevice=/dev/sdXn:main root=/dev/mapper/main-root rw lang=en locale=en_US.UTF-8
